Lithium-ion battery production, maintenance, installation, and transportation are covered by a number of safety requirements and standards. Yet the ongoing incidents including fires and explosions with batteries confirm that the current regulatory framework is insufficient alone for predicting the most likely reasons for failure.
Battery testing and hazard analysis can provide additional information to help reduce these incidents. In addition to providing complete safety and risk management services for the process safety industry, ioMosaic offers global expertise with lithium-ion battery safety regulations to help you minimize your exposure to fire, injury, property damage, and litigation.
Lithium-ion batteries are being utilized in more and more applications; from consumer electronics to automobiles, airplanes, and even energy storage systems. Failure can result in both performance and safety concerns such as cell capacity reduction and possible separator defects leading to fires. The possibility of cell failure is difficult to completely prevent, however with proper testing, tools, and expertise we help our clients mitigate and reduce the risk.
ioMosaic pioneered many of the current techniques for conducting a hazard analysis. We understand and employ best practice techniques, including preliminary or inherent hazard analysis, hazard and operability (HAZOP) studies, and failure modes and effects analyses (FMEA) of single lithium-ion batteries and battery energy storage systems (BESS). Each scenario's impact and frequency are evaluated by our process. We also help you identify safeguards and other mitigation strategies to reduce the risk to your installation following a Battery Hazard Analysis (BHA).
Our exclusive partner ioKinetic has many years of experience testing the variety of battery chemistries available and all popular battery types. A Calorimeter can be used to measure the safety of batteries by simulating both normal and worst-case operating conditions safely under laboratory conditions. These techniques include differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetric analysis, explosion severity, and accelerating rate calorimetry.
Our ISO accredited, ultramodern testing facility offers the following lab tests (but not limited to):
Please Note: Maximum capacity tested: 150 Ah. Pressure test limits are 4 bar and 25 Ah capacity. The chamber size is 25 cm in diameter and 60 cm in depth. Maximum testing limits may vary depending on battery chemistry and format; please contact ioMosaic for more information.
Our software Process Safety Office® PHAGlobal® is the most useful and cost-effective PHA/DHA tool on the market. The process hazard assessment documentation software simplifies the recording of findings and tracking follow-up from PHAs. It also eliminates the need for any special application software when working with the results. PHAGlobal® delivers professional, branded reports and make it easier to comply with codes and standards, such as OSHA PSM, EPA RMP and NFPA, that require PHAs.
We understand the safety and risk processes needed or adhered to worldwide, and we deliver practical, locally compliant solutions to safety and risk challenges facing our clients. Call us today at 1.844.ioMosaic or fill out our online form. We would love to hear from you.
